REPORTING A STUDENT ABSENCE

To report your child's absence, please contact the Attendance Team as early in the morning of each day of absence as possible. Please include your child's name, tutor group/class, the reason for their absence and the anticipated date of their return.

ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY

Regular attendance and punctuality to the Academy and to lessons is essential for all of our students to make good progress, achieve their academic potential and consequently have better chances in life. Attendance is a key performance indicator within the Academy. It is the responsibility of everyone in the Academy community to ensure they achieve this. The Academy monitors the attendance and punctuality of all students and reviews it weekly.

The Academy's Attendance Target is 96%.

Attendance over One Academy Year
If a student had:

98% attendance = fewer than 4 days absent from school
95% attendance = fewer than 10 days absent from school
90% attendance = 4 weeks absent from school
85% attendance = 5 ½ weeks absent from school
80% attendance = 7 ½ weeks absent from school (Equivalent to one day per week absence for the whole year).
N.B. A child who misses a day of school per week throughout Years R – 11 misses an equivalent of over two years of their learning time in school)
 

SECURITY

The Academy also has a modern and comprehensive fire detection system.  Access to the main Academy buildings for staff, students and visitors is carefully monitored by the Reception team.

Identification badges and lanyards are issued to visitors and photo ID cards are also worn by all staff. The remainder of students in the Academy are identifiable by their Academy uniform.

Whisper

Whisper is an anonymous reporting service that allows members of our school community to tell us about any issues they have and reach out for support and guidance. It enables us to ensure that our students are heard and know that they have someone who can help them.
